“ Look for me in the whirlwind or the storm." Marcus Garvey
A streak of lightning across a clear blue sky
Perhaps God splitting the dimensions?
Suddenly blindsided by a rain bomb that came from who knows where
Visibility below zero
Grateful for a truck ahead of me to follow his taillights
Then gratitude turns to panic as he changed to another lane, leaving me behind.
Praying, chanting, begging for the storm to stop.
Hearing the words to a favorite song “God, I need a favor.”
That was my experience with one of the two storms I went through today on my way to south Florida. Both were intense with torrential downpours and raging winds. The difference was that I saw the first one coming and was able to get to a safe place to wait it out. Once the storm passed, I proceeded on my journey. With the next one, there was no warning. It was like a mystery storm coming from seemingly nowhere and all of a sudden it was everywhere. I was caught in what my friend Sheri calls a “rain bomb.” I thought about these two experiences as metaphors for life. Sometimes we see what is ahead of us, our intuition sends out a warning of “danger, danger” even before our physical eyes see the problem. We are able to avert a disaster because we have time to pause and strategize. Then there are the storms of life that seem to blindside us. No warning bells, no time to react, just a lightning flash and then the fallout. What happens next will either make us stronger or destroy us. We always have choices.
Dear Angels, my journey is always guided and protected by Archangel Michael. I know that if he had not been with me to calm my energy, guiding me to chant and sing as I made my way out of the storm, I would have surely panicked totally and the outcome would have been different. Even though my physical eyes could not see the road, there was a force greater than me that was guiding the vehicle. Life is that way as well. When we cannot see the path we are walking down with our human eyes, our guides are keeping us safely centered so we don’t veer away from where we need to be.
Dear Ones, your experiences in life are happening for your soul growth. As you learn more about faith and trust, you will find the storms easier to handle. You have been given tools to utilize but it is up to you to use them. The more you understand where your power comes from and how to connect in to it, the easier the storms will seem to be even though they may be quite intense. Your faith is what will bring you through the biggest challenges. Always come from the heart center and you will be guided safely home.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to stay in my heart even through the toughest storms.
